The ECU Strategic Plan 2014-2019

The new ECU Strategic Plan 2014-2019, Beyond Tomorrow: Our Commitment to the Future is designed to support and advance the ECU Mission and affirm our commitment to student success, public service, and regional transformation. The plan outlines both the external and internal challenges that we face in maintaining our current position in an increasingly competitive global climate. This strategic plan defines the seven key strategies that we have identified as fundamental in responding to these challenges.

The strategies, and initiatives that support them, draw upon every area of our work. They have been developed in collaboration with students, faculty, staff, and partners from across the University community and will continue to take form as we align our unit plans to this University-wide blueprint.  This new strategic plan will drive systematic efforts and initiatives to inspire, grow, improve, and achieve our goals with economy and efficiency.

The new ECU Strategic Plan 2014-2019, is a reaffirmation of who we are; a reflection on our accomplishments; it expresses our expectation of excellence in all we do, and represents the enthusiasm and appreciation that we have for East Carolina University. With our new strategic plan, we commit to creating a model university, global in its reach and impact, where personal connections with students, faculty, staff and partners support our students’ academic success, serve the public, and lead regional transformation, as we remain good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.

We are fully committed to this important effort.
